‘Work together, create impact’ is a new all-Research Network in-person event.

Online launch event: Our lives, our futures: Art and dialogue about what matters to children and young people

Our public launch event 'Our Lives, Our Futures' brought together young people, educators, researchers and organisations to consider some of the pressing issues for children and young people today.

An online exhibition of art created by children and young people in Oxfordshire was accompanied by an exciting programme of talks and interactive panel discussions. The event also showcased some of the Children and Young People Network members' exciting and important research.

The Future of School

With Dr Patrick Alexander, School of Education

What should schools of the future look like?

In this interactive workshop, young people were given the opportunity to think about their recent experiences of school and to think afresh about what school should look like in the future. Do we need school buildings? Do we need exams? Do we need teachers? The future of school is in your hands!
